and to me un-american. >> well, i think it is. i think it's a version of class warfare. when the president talks about making sure kids can get loans to go to college or even forgiveness of loans so they don't -- aren't burdened by debt, he's doing this so that america has a vibrant and innovative economy, that people -- we're moving ahead. it's not a handout. this is a way of investing in our future as a nation. >> as well as giving incentives to -- >> not to recognize that shows that he's really living on a different planet. and you know, that's what this election boiled down to, these very different views of visions and values for the nation. and he has firmly planted the flag on the side of, you know, the rich get what they get and everybody else -- >> because that -- we need to give incentives to business. but we also must take care of americans. but abby, i see a lot of the republicans, particularly those that are looking toward bringing the party back from a political loss and some who are thinking about 16, seem to be running away from him. bobby jindal and scott walker were quick

, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. and you know, we're after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi, and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants. we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information and we've got a full-blown investigation. and all that information will be disgorged to congress. and i don't think there's any debate in this country that when you have four americans killed, that's a problem. and we've got to get to the bottom of it. and there needs to be accountability. we've got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't get any debate from me on that. but when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choos

capacity of her job the way she should as a u.n. ambassador. from what general petraeus said and congressman king said general petraeus is not saying the same information. >> it's entirely possible that on the 14th, as peter king said, and he's probably got a pretty good memory, he got a different story from general petraeus. >> that's the cia director at the time. that's not the white house. >> and general petraeus had enough military experience to know himself that when you have an attack like this -- i spent a lot of time doing this. when you have an aattack like this, it's preplanned and maybe even rehearsed. to say anything else is complete nonsense to a military mind. if peerter king is right and goa different story from general petraeus on the 14th, then petraeus was economical with the truth back then, thoo. >> that's more gentle. molly, let me bring you in on this. peter king is saying that he got one version from general petraeus on the 14th and something different he recalls today. what are we to make of this? >> you know, like you say, this is something that came

with you. 97 house republicans have sent a letter to the president to discourage him from nominating u.n. ambassador susan rice as secretary of state. and this follows andrea mitchell's reporting yesterday that it was the intelligence community, not the white house, that changed talking points about the unclassified data that could be discussed when susan rice went out on the sunday talk shows to discuss what was known about the benghazi situation. is that something that republicans are choosing to ignore, the facts of that? they're trying to draft a letter like this to almost wreck her reputation before she is even nominated. >> and frankly it doesn't matter what the house of representatives thinks. they have no say in the process. this is more of a headline scheme, frankly. this is press release politics, which is the last thing we need right now. but what is important is to look at the white house did put her out there. she did her job. i'll give her that. she spoke with the talking points she had, what she knew. the fact is the administration to put her out there with misleading info
